Crammed with reprinted coverage from DC’s flagship publication, the Washington Post Vietnam Book is an extraordinary reportage history of the key events of the war in Vietnam.

Reportage of the bloody conflict starts with America’s participation from August 1964. The first report is on the early attack on the USS Maddox by the communist forces of the north, while the US’s decision thereafter to speed up the nation’s numerical commitment also features in detail.

Next, the book describes all of the key twists and turns of 1965, from the bombing of the US embassy in Saigon, to Operation Rolling Thunder, in which the US undertook a sustained bombing campaign against targets in north Vietnam.

Also highlighted in detail is the course of the war during 1966 and 1967, with the heavy loss of life a constant theme. Undeniably, with US troops and civilians falling in their thousands, a wave of domestic protests was triggered in the face of an uncertain outcome.

The political pressure being applied to President Johnson during 1968 is reflected in the nature of the reporting, while the final years of the conflict, in which the newly elected Richard Nixon sought an exit strategy and eventually announced a policy of ‘Vietnamization’ in 1969, are also covered at length.

Over the impending four years, reports look at the American withdrawal of troops, culminating in the eventual ceasefire in January 1973. And finally, things conclude in April 1975 with Saigon’s surrender to the Vietcong. Indeed, with the north unifying the country under communist rule, the conflict marked a sad episode in US history.
